Rewind & Fast Forward
There are two fast forward/rewind functions that allow you to jump to the position you need.
Both are available at all times, except when the CURSOR shuttle and DATA dial are used for
setting values or selecting settings (i.e., when the PITCH, ADJUST, EDIT, or UTILITY indi-
cator lights).

Shuttle Playback Function (Cue/Review)

The outer rim of the CURSOR shuttle/DATA dial (which we have come to call the CURSOR
shuttle) allows you to fast forward or rewind at different speeds during playback. During this
operation, the material on disc remains audible (which is why these functions are also called
Cue and Review). The position of the CURSOR shuttle determines the Cue or Review speed
(the speed value will appear on the display):
Fast forward (during playback): CUE
Normal speed
CUE x0.5
Rewind (during playback): REVIEW

1. Press the [PLAY] button to start playback.
2. Turn the CURSOR shuttle to the right to fast forward/temporarily
increase the playback speed.
